Together with our community partners and friends, the Junior League of Eastern Fairfield County annually hosts a volunteer “marathon” with 26.2 hours straight of volunteering for a variety of projects in the local community. Each year the needs of our community are re-evaluated – projects may include cooking for local food pantries, organizing informational packets for community partners, sorting donated clothing and shoes, painting and beautifying, and cataloging archival items.
The 2018-2019 Volunteer-a-thon was a huge success, with over sixty women participating in the event. The group volunteered over 200 “woman-hours” of work supporting six of our community partners.
If you would like to participate in next year’s volunteer-a-thon, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
